    My frenchie has MRSP, need advice

    My Frenchie has had MRSP (methicillin-resistant S. pseudintermedius, which is a form of Staph that is highly resistant to many antibiotics) for about a year now. I joined this forum looking for advice from anyone who has gone through something similar.

    He is on his third antibiotic because the first two did not fully clear the infection and he is now resistant to them. It actually appeared to have cleared but the bumps keep coming back. When we first got the results, about 9 antibiotics were on the list as “effective”, 11 months later he now only has a choice of 4 because he as become resistant to the others. He is currently taking Baytrol (sp?) and has been on it for about 5 days. Although I do see some improvement the bump are not completely gone yet.

    After a year of endless medicated baths, washing sheets and toys, strict diet, vet bills amounting over $1000 we are completely exhausted, and mostly worried this will never get cleared. Has anyone experiences anything like this? Any advice?

    I have seen threads on English Bulldog News regarding MRSA, but I don't think I've ever seen MRSP. It sounds very similar though. Maybe this topic from EBN can help you, and us all learn more about this.

    EBN is our sister forum, it's been around about 4 years. This one only for about 4 months. So there is a lot of information there, I sure hope the Baytril works. Search indicates that MRSP is also in the first topic too.

    I don't know anything about it, but I hope the vet keeps him on the antibiotic long enough to get rid of it once and for all.

    I found a good article... this was the most important thing that jumped out at me - Treatment choices should be based on culture and susceptibility testing. Has your vet obtained a culture to have it tested as to which antibiotic would be effective against this strain? You may have already been this route...
